Secure Transportation and Executive Protection News Podcast

The ISDA’s Secure Transportation and Executive Protection News Podcast is a convenient communication tool that can increase your professional development.

Every weekday, in audio format, we send secure transportation and executive protection news, headlines, trends, educational content and announcements from the International Security Driver Association and SecurityDriver.Com to our Podcast audience.

Subjects covered in our Podcast cover all aspects of the profession we discuss

  • Surveillance Detection
  • Executive Vehicles
  • Armored Vehicles
  • Security Driving
  • The business of EP/Secure Transportation
  • Counter-Terrorism
  • Cyber Security

Unlike social media posts, where people mind-numbingly scroll through the news feed, where content can get buried in seconds, the ISDA podcast advantage (or any podcast for that matter) is exclusivity, in that it can be listened to off of social media in a myriad podcast player apps like the Apple podcast app and Google Play.

In addition to the podcast apps, the ISDA Podcast episodes are archived on our website and can be listened to at the convenience of the listener. The Podcast website also supplies links to all articles and documents mentioned in the episodes. Over 100 podcasts episodes are available on the ISDA archive website.

In a little more than six months into the ISDA podcast, the metrics are encouraging. Over 35,000 listeners have downloaded the Podcast episodes from 125 countries, and the numbers are increasing exponentially.

The following ISDA podcast episode links to education articles that were discussed:

Surveillance Detection and Security Driving
Understanding how, when, and where an attacker is likely to conduct surveillance as well as how to plan, manage and conduct effective surveillance detection operations is an essential tool for security providers.

2018 Lincoln Navigator Review
Since the inception of the ISDA Executive Vehicle and Secure Transportation Survey in 2013, our data has shown the primary mode of secure transportation has been an SUV.

Security Driving and Electronic Stability Control
For those of us who have lost control of a car, we know that it’s that first twitch of the car that tells us that we are about to have an exciting experience. That twitch is information the car is sending to us. For some, interpreting this information is second nature, and for others, it’s like trying to understand Swahili.

Who is Driving Your Executive?
In a security setting, there are in most cases, security drivers. These drivers do much more than just drive from point A to point B. Security drivers must have the skill and knowledge to move a principal from point A to point B in a safe and secure manner in a variety of environments. In fact, Security Driving is better called Secure Transportation which includes an in-depth knowledge, and a measured level of skill to conduct route surveys; recognize and develop safe havens – alternate route plans, and develop emergency evacuation plans, along with emergency medical and surveillance detection skills.

Pirelli Is Launching Smart Tires That Can Monitor Wear and Load
From Car and Driver
Pirelli is among the first tire manufacturers to introduce a truly “smart” tire, which it calls Connesso (Italian for “connected”) for the aftermarket version and Cyber Tire for the variant it’s selling to automakers. The system delivers a richer well of data than the industry-standard tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which transmits real-time readings to the car’s CAN bus and displays tire pressures and sometimes temperatures on your dash. Pirelli’s smart tire certainly can do that, but instead of mounting pressure sensors to each wheel’s air valve, it embeds a combination sensor in each tire’s inner wall that measures pressure, temperature, and vertical load. That’s only the start.

Surveillance Detection, The Art of Prevention, a book by Laura Clark and William Algaier
As much as we would all like to believe that our government and law enforcement agencies can protect us from crime and terrorism, our safety is not completely assured. Certainly, we cannot take the law into our own hands, but we can use legal preventative measures to protect ourselves, our families, our businesses, and our assets. Surveillance detection (SD) is a technique that has been around for a long time and is now being revitalized and implemented worldwide for the war against terror.
